Monday, March 5th, 2007

The State Railway of Thailand (SRT) is in dire need of 18 billion baht as the payment is due in November for the Airport Link railway system that will connect the city to Suvarnabhumi airport.

Suthon Jetketkan, chief of the SRT’s electric railway office, said the SRT would have to pay 18 billion baht to the creditor bank that financed the 30-billion-baht Airport Link project. The instalment is due on Nov 5. The deadline is the completion date of the 990-day railway construction contract.

Land near new Bangkok Airport can be used for logistics, expert says

Friday, November 3rd, 2006

A special agency should be set up and a new planning regime imposed to map out proper use of land near airports, especially the new Suvarnabhumi Airport, an aviation expert has suggested.

Better management would help prevent the new airport from becoming surrounded by residential areas and other businesses or activities that are not related to aviation, said Suwat Wanisubut, director of the Office of the Suvarnabhumi Airport Development Committee.

He noted that no controls existed around the old Don Muang airport and the result was a hodge-podge of land uses, not all of them compatible.

Discount storage fees possible for outgoing agricultural products

Monday, October 9th, 2006

Suvarnabhumi Airport management will review the possibility of discounting storage fees for outgoing agricultural products.

Exporters have complained that the slow process of goods checking and verification spoilt perishable goods at the airport’s customs-free zone.

They have also complained about the one baht per kilogramme charge for storage, which had not been collected at the former Bangkok International Airport at Don Muang.

Responding to these complaints, Suvarnabhumi Airport general manager Somchai Sawasdeepon said that Airports of Thailand Plc (AOT) which operates the airport is finding space to be allocated specifically for agricultural goods. More parking spaces will also be made available to facilitate handling of perishable goods.
